Ways to support Friends of The Carson City Library

Monetary Donations

If you can’t sign up for a membership or if you don’t have the time to volunteer in the bookstore, you can still donate to Friends of the Carson City Library and support the special reading programs and book acquisitions for our library. Just click on the “Donate Now” button below.

Item Donations

We accept gently-used books, magazines, records, CDs, DVDs, games and puzzles. We sell donations, so if they’re not in a condition you would buy, chances are neither would anyone else. We don’t sell moldy, stained, marked up or otherwise falling apart items.

Donations are accepted during business hours inside the book store. For after-hour donations, please place items in “The Beast,” located in the front of the store. For large donations of more than three (3) boxes, please contact Lisa at the book store by calling 775-884-4043 in advance to make arrangements.

Bring your donation in boxes, sturdy shopping bags, or easy-to-carry containers you don’t wish to have back.

Do not leave any donated items on the ground, outside the dropbox or sitting in front of the store. It is unlawful to leave donations outside of dropbox at any time, especially when the store is closed. Violators will be prosecuted and are subject to fine (NRS 444.630).
